0:00:180:00:22

This is Comic Relief Does Glee Club 2013.

0:00:220:00:25

Hello and welcome back to Comic Relief Does Glee Club

0:00:430:00:46

and the second of our judges' auditions.

0:00:460:00:49

Last time, we saw eight groups battle it out

0:00:490:00:52

for a place in the studio heats, but only five made it through.

0:00:520:00:56

Today, eight more will sing

0:00:560:00:58

and dance in front of the judges for the chance to perform again

0:00:580:01:01

in the heats on this very stage in front of a live audience.

0:01:010:01:05

The search for Britain's best young glee club took us all over the UK.

0:01:050:01:09

Let's have a look back at some of the acts who came to visit us

0:01:090:01:12

on the Comic Relief Does Glee Club tour.

0:01:120:01:15

Naomi and judge John Modi travelled up and down the country

0:01:200:01:24

in search of the very best glee clubs Britain has to offer.

0:01:240:01:28

# And I'm gonna praise you I'm gonna praise you... #

0:01:280:01:32

The journey started in Newcastle,

0:01:320:01:34

where they checked out

0:01:340:01:36

the cream of the Northeast's performing talent...

0:01:360:01:39

..before heading across the water to Belfast.

0:01:400:01:45

Today, we're in Glasgow.

0:01:480:01:50

Next up was Glasgow, with Scottish groups eager to wow John with

0:01:500:01:55

more incredible performances.

0:01:550:01:58

You're excited that we are finding talent in Glasgow.

0:01:580:02:01

I'm very excited about Glasgow, love it.

0:02:010:02:04

The mission continued south of the border in sunny Manchester.

0:02:040:02:07

-I feel excited.

-The talent kept on coming with Cardiff the next stop.

0:02:070:02:12

# Tonight, I gotta cut loose footloose... #

0:02:120:02:15

Last on the hit list was the capital, London...

0:02:150:02:18

There's a whole hive of activity out here.

0:02:180:02:20

..where even more glee clubs turned up and didn't disappoint.

0:02:200:02:24

# Tonight's gonna be a good good night... #

0:02:240:02:27

The standard was amazing, but it was down to John to select

0:02:270:02:31

the top 24 groups that would perform again here at the judges' auditions.

0:02:310:02:36

Now, keeping an eye on the proceedings

0:02:400:02:43

and making those all-important decisions were our resident judges.

0:02:430:02:47

Let's meet the people who will decide the fate of our groups

0:02:470:02:50

and look out for some special guests.

0:02:500:02:53

Carrie and David are two of the UK's best known celebrity vocal coaches.

0:02:580:03:02

-That was really good. I love your energy.

-Breathtaking.

0:03:020:03:06

They've worked with a whole host of artists from The Spice Girls

0:03:060:03:09

and Take That to The Saturdays.

0:03:090:03:11

Celebrity vocal and performance coach John has worked with

0:03:110:03:14

a variety of stars, from Leona Lewis to Olly Murs and Alexandra Burke.

0:03:140:03:18

He's also worked on top shows like The Voice and X Factor.

0:03:180:03:22

Offering additional advice to the groups will be West End star

0:03:220:03:26

and X Factor winner Joe McElderry. He's recorded four albums

0:03:260:03:30

and his debut single The Climb topped the UK charts.

0:03:300:03:34

Soul singer and presenter Dionne Bromfield.

0:03:340:03:37

She's been nominated for a MOBO award, has recorded two albums

0:03:370:03:40

and finds time to present CBBC's Friday Download.

0:03:400:03:44

And X Factor finalist and TV presenter Stacey Solomon.

0:03:440:03:48

Not only has she wowed audience with her voice,

0:03:480:03:51

she's also a regular star on our TV screens.

0:03:510:03:55

Of the many groups that applied for Comic Relief Does Glee Club,

0:04:000:04:04

only the top 24 made it to the judges' auditions.

0:04:040:04:07

Today, eight of those hopefuls will perform,

0:04:070:04:10

but only five can go through to the studio heats.

0:04:100:04:13

So, let's meet the first act who will face the judges.

0:04:130:04:16

First up, we have Excellar8 from Stockport.

0:04:230:04:27

They caught my attention in Manchester.

0:04:270:04:29

I love these kids.

0:04:290:04:30

They are...as far as the cuteness factor, they've got it.

0:04:300:04:35

Lots of young ones. They are full of life.

0:04:350:04:38

When they finish, I'm just like...

0:04:380:04:41

I feel energised, big smile on my face, and they have a big sound.

0:04:410:04:45

-Has anything gone wrong on the run-up to today?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:04:450:04:50

-Somebody lost their voice.

-Who's lost their voice?

0:04:500:04:53

Not lost her voice, but she's got a sore throat.

0:04:530:04:56

You're taking over today. And when did this all happen?

0:04:560:04:59

-Today.

-Today?! Let's get you on stage, show them what you're made of.

0:04:590:05:04

Hope it goes really well!

0:05:040:05:06

# Give me a second, I I need to get my story straight... #

0:05:150:05:18

Lovely!

0:05:180:05:21

# ..And my lover she's waiting for me just across the bar

0:05:210:05:27

# My seat's been taken by some sunglasses asking about a scar

0:05:270:05:31

-# I know I gave it to you months ago

-Ah ah ah

0:05:310:05:35

# I know you're trying to forget

0:05:350:05:39

# But between the drinks and subtle things

0:05:390:05:42

# The holes in my apologies You know

0:05:420:05:45

# I'm trying hard to take it back

0:05:450:05:47

# So if by the time the bar closes

0:05:470:05:50

# And you feel like falling down

0:05:500:05:53

# I'll carry you home

0:05:530:05:56

# Tonight

0:05:560:05:59

# We are young

0:05:590:06:03

# So let's set the world on fire

0:06:040:06:08

# We can burn brighter than the sun

0:06:080:06:15

# Tonight

0:06:170:06:19

# We are young

0:06:210:06:24

# So let's set the world on fire

0:06:250:06:29

# We can burn brighter than the sun

0:06:290:06:36

# Tonight. #

0:06:360:06:41

THEY APPLAUD

0:06:410:06:44

-You could hear a bit of nerves in their voice?

-Um...

0:06:440:06:47

I just think Jess is not very well today.

0:06:470:06:49

The last minute change has slightly thrown her.

0:06:490:06:52

Alicia, who stepped in for her...

0:06:520:06:55

she was more than happy to and she was on the ball.

0:06:550:06:58

Very well done. I loved your soloists.

0:06:580:07:00

Their voices were beautiful.

0:07:000:07:02

The ensemble, I felt was like a game of two halves.

0:07:020:07:05

The first half was a little sloppy.

0:07:050:07:07

And then we got to the second half and you suddenly locked in

0:07:070:07:11

and then we got what you were really about.

0:07:110:07:13

-So, well done for that.

-ALL: Thank you.

0:07:130:07:16

Great song choice. You sang it really well.

0:07:160:07:19

You are cuter than the cutest thing in cute town.

0:07:190:07:22

And I felt that it got better and better as it went on.

0:07:220:07:26

I think technically, there were little bits that weren't

0:07:260:07:29

perfect, but there's something about you that really makes me happy.

0:07:290:07:33

You've got a lovely energy that you bring to the stage

0:07:330:07:36

and you give off as you perform.

0:07:360:07:38

It didn't really matter about anything that wasn't just

0:07:380:07:41

quite perfect cos you're just so lovely to watch.

0:07:410:07:45

You had that last minute change,

0:07:450:07:47

which must have been quite hard to handle.

0:07:470:07:50

-How did you cope?

-Fine.

-You enjoyed yourself.

0:07:500:07:53

-And how was your solo?

-Loud.

0:07:530:07:57

-Do you think you did as well as you could have done?

-Yeah.

0:07:570:08:00

-They were smiling.

-Good.

0:08:000:08:02

That's always nice when they smile back at you.

0:08:020:08:05

I think they're going to be one of those that we deliberate over.

0:08:050:08:08

I still like them.

0:08:080:08:10

I look at the chemistry, I look at the personality,

0:08:100:08:13

-the performance, the stage presence.

-And how they make you feel.

0:08:130:08:17

Some of them are more polished and technically better,

0:08:170:08:21

but are you then losing the authenticity of a group like that

0:08:210:08:25

and is that a nice thing to have?

0:08:250:08:27

Good afternoon. You guys look really cool.

0:08:320:08:36

'Next, we have Fresh from Glasgow.

0:08:360:08:39

'I'm pretty sentimental about these guys.

0:08:390:08:42

'They remind me of S Club Juniors.'

0:08:420:08:45

-Is there anything you're very worried about today?

-The harmonies.

0:08:450:08:50

The harmonies.

0:08:500:08:51

-Why? Have they been going wrong in rehearsal?

-Sometimes.

0:08:510:08:55

-Sometimes we get them.

-So, either you get it, or you miss it?

-Yeah.

0:08:550:09:00

So try and get it today. You'll get it!

0:09:000:09:03

-Any little group thing you want to do before you go in?

-Yeah.

-Yes.

0:09:030:09:06

F-f-f-f-f-resh!

0:09:060:09:08

# Don't stop moving' to the funky, funky beat

0:09:130:09:16

# Don't stop moving to the funky, funky beat

0:09:160:09:20

# DJ got the party started There's no end in sight

0:09:200:09:25

# Everybody's moving to the rhythm that's inside

0:09:250:09:28

# It's a crazy world but tonight's the right situation

0:09:280:09:34

# Don't get left behind

0:09:340:09:37

# I can feel the music moving through me everywhere

0:09:370:09:40

# Ain't no destination Baby, we don't even care

0:09:400:09:44

-# There's a place to be

-If you need the right education

0:09:440:09:50

# Let me take you there

0:09:500:09:53

# And just go

0:09:530:09:55

# With the magic, baby

0:09:550:09:58

# I can see it there in your eyes

0:09:580:10:01

# Let it flow

0:10:010:10:03

# Stop the waiting

0:10:030:10:05

# Right here on the dance floor is where you gotta let it go

0:10:050:10:10

# Don't stop movin'

0:10:100:10:12

# Can you feel the music?

0:10:120:10:14

# DJ's got us going around, around

0:10:140:10:17

# Don't stop movin'

0:10:170:10:20

# Find your own way to it

0:10:200:10:22

# Listen to the music

0:10:220:10:24

# Taking you to places that you've never been before, baby, now

0:10:240:10:29

# Don't stop moving to the funky, funky beat

0:10:290:10:33

# Don't stop moving to the funky, funky beat. #

0:10:330:10:36

THEY APPLAUD

0:10:360:10:40

Your actual vocal sound together is really good.

0:10:400:10:44

You sound like you've sung together for a long time.

0:10:440:10:49

And that really works. That's one of your big strengths.

0:10:490:10:52

Your timing is a bit of an issue. You're rushing a bit.

0:10:520:10:56

Some tuning issues in the harmony, but as a group,

0:10:560:10:59

that sound that you produce is really unmatched

0:10:590:11:03

and the energy that you give off,

0:11:030:11:05

-you just put a smile on my face and that's the effect you have.

-I agree.

0:11:050:11:09

Song choice was great and the dance routines, the vocals,

0:11:090:11:13

-everything just matched really well. Well done.

-ALL:

-Thank you.

0:11:130:11:16

Well done, guys.

0:11:180:11:21

You enjoyed that!

0:11:210:11:23

-Are you happy?

-So much fun.

-You really enjoyed it?

-Yes!

0:11:230:11:27

-What was the best thing about that?

-They said the harmonies were good!

0:11:270:11:32

Yay!

0:11:320:11:34

And what did you think about when they told you that you might

0:11:340:11:38

-need to slow down at points?

-Yeah.

0:11:380:11:41

I quite like some parts but when we were going off musically,

0:11:410:11:44

-it was...

-Did you hear it happening as you were doing it?

-Yeah.

0:11:440:11:48

-Did you?

-It was cos we were excited.

-Yeah.

0:11:480:11:51

-It was all constructive criticism.

-Exactly.

0:11:510:11:55

-You're going to take that away and work on it?

-Yeah.

0:11:550:11:58

I think the timing was off in the dance. They haven't changed.

0:11:580:12:01

-They're rushing.

-It's because they have so much energy.

0:12:010:12:05

-The question is, are they ready?

-They're very young.

0:12:050:12:08

I've noticed that and you've been watching them too.

0:12:080:12:11

-But I haven't seen anything like that.

-I think that is the appeal.

0:12:110:12:15

-I haven't seen anything like them and their blend is great.

-It is.

0:12:150:12:19

-I really like their blend.

-Like it.

0:12:190:12:22

# Don't stop movin' to the funky, funky beat. #

0:12:220:12:26

With Excellar8 changing a soloist at the last minute

0:12:310:12:34

and Fresh needing to work on their timing,

0:12:340:12:37

neither is guaranteed a place in the next round.

0:12:370:12:39

Next up, another two groups sing their hearts out.

0:12:390:12:42

You have strengths and you have an identity.

0:12:420:12:46

It's out of tune all the way through.

0:12:460:12:48

I did see glimpses throughout of total performance and brilliance.

0:12:480:12:53

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven...

0:12:580:13:02

'Right, the next act up is Impact from West Sussex.'

0:13:030:13:09

And some of the group members, they auditioned as part of The Tempests.

0:13:090:13:14

# We built this city on rock'n'roll... #

0:13:140:13:19

It'll be quite interesting to see what you think.

0:13:190:13:23

# Made a wrong turn once or twice

0:13:230:13:27

# Dug my way out, blood and fire

0:13:270:13:32

# Bad decisions, that's all right

0:13:320:13:37

# Welcome to my silly life

0:13:370:13:42

# Mistreated Misplaced, misunderstood

0:13:420:13:47

# Miss knowing it's no good

0:13:470:13:50

# It didn't slow me down

0:13:500:13:53

# Mistaken, always second guessing

0:13:530:13:58

# Underestimating Look, I'm still around

0:13:580:14:05

# Pretty, pretty, please Don't you ever, ever feel

0:14:050:14:10

# Like you're less than Less than perfect

0:14:100:14:15

# Pretty, pretty, please Don't you ever, ever feel

0:14:150:14:21

# Like you're nothing You are perfect to me

0:14:210:14:27

# You're perfect to me

0:14:280:14:31

# It's perfect, you're perfect We're perfect

0:14:310:14:37

# Pretty, pretty, please Don't you ever, ever feel

0:14:370:14:42

# Like you're nothing You are perfect

0:14:420:14:47

# To me. #

0:14:470:14:51

Aw.

0:14:510:14:52

THEY APPLAUD

0:14:520:14:55

-You feel they've done it better?

-Yes.

-Do you think that's nerves?

-Yeah.

0:14:550:15:00

I think one girl particularly,

0:15:000:15:01

who's doing the middle line harmony, just lost it.

0:15:010:15:03

She didn't do it at all. It's just nerves.

0:15:030:15:05

Impact, wow!

0:15:050:15:08

Your soloists, can I just say, that is some of the best vocal

0:15:080:15:11

technique that I have heard in young people for a very, very long time.

0:15:110:15:16

Absolutely stunning soloists.

0:15:160:15:19

ALL: Thank you.

0:15:190:15:21

Really, I'm really blown away by your solos. Amazing.

0:15:210:15:24

Ensemble wise, it's pitchy. So it's out of tune all the way through.

0:15:240:15:30

I'm sure when you watch it back you'll think,

0:15:300:15:33

"Oh, my gosh, we are really out of tune there."

0:15:330:15:35

You need to work out amongst yourselves who are the people

0:15:350:15:37

that are going out of tune, and really help them to just bring it up

0:15:370:15:41

so it doesn't slip down.

0:15:410:15:42

It was quite a good performance.

0:15:420:15:44

I think your theatrical presentation was great, staging was great,

0:15:440:15:49

individual voices - fantastic.

0:15:490:15:51

I think you have potential.

0:15:510:15:53

Whether you make it to the next round, well, we'll have to see.

0:15:530:15:56

The song itself,

0:15:560:15:58

I thought you performed it like you knew what you were singing about.

0:15:580:16:01

I think it's really hard for certain people to go on stage

0:16:010:16:04

and sing a song and not know what they are singing about.

0:16:040:16:06

But all of you definitely made that shine through.

0:16:060:16:09

I could see you knew what you were singing about. So well done, guys.

0:16:090:16:13

-How was it?

-Great.

-It was really good.

-A lot of fun.

0:16:150:16:18

It was nerve-wracking but I think it's just a great experience.

0:16:180:16:21

They did make a few comments, a few critical comments, a few positive

0:16:210:16:24

comments. What were your reactions to the judges and what they said?

0:16:240:16:28

I think they were very fair. We are definitely going to work on it.

0:16:280:16:31

We are going to perfect it.

0:16:310:16:33

Having that criticism is really, really good.

0:16:330:16:36

That's a good way of looking at it.

0:16:360:16:37

I think we all agreed that

0:16:370:16:39

they sing the song like they really understand it.

0:16:390:16:41

They've got an emotional intelligence.

0:16:410:16:44

They've got performance ability. They performed it really well.

0:16:440:16:47

They have vocal talent and vocal technique.

0:16:470:16:50

The fact that they were pitchy,

0:16:510:16:54

do we believe that that is something that they can fix?

0:16:540:16:58

Because if it isn't, they can't go through.

0:16:580:17:01

If it is, they've got everything else.

0:17:010:17:03

# You are perfect to me. #

0:17:030:17:10

'Next up it's True To Your Skool from Doncaster.

0:17:170:17:20

'An all-girl group, they've got good chemistry and interaction.'

0:17:200:17:25

I think they've something different about them - a lot of soul.

0:17:250:17:28

They've just got energy. Let's see what you think.

0:17:280:17:31

Are you looking forward to it? ALL: Yes!

0:17:310:17:33

How are you feeling?

0:17:330:17:34

-Just excited! Just excited!

-Excited to see the judges and sing.

0:17:340:17:38

And it's a great opportunity, so we should make the most of it.

0:17:380:17:41

ALL: Yes!

0:17:410:17:42

Shall we take a deep breath together?

0:17:420:17:44

THEY BREATHE DEEPLY

0:17:440:17:46

All right, take it away.

0:17:460:17:48

# Ah ah ah

0:17:500:17:54

# Ah ah ah ah

0:17:560:17:59

# Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

0:18:010:18:05

# Ah ah

0:18:050:18:08

# Oh oh oh

0:18:080:18:10

# Oh oh oh oh

0:18:100:18:16

# Hold me

0:18:160:18:18

# Like the River Jordan

0:18:180:18:21

# And I will then say to thee

0:18:210:18:24

# You are my friend

0:18:240:18:28

# Carry me

0:18:280:18:30

# Like you are my brother

0:18:300:18:32

# Love me like a mother

0:18:320:18:35

# Will you be there?

0:18:350:18:38

# Everyone's taking control of me

0:18:380:18:41

# Seems that the world's got a role for me

0:18:410:18:44

# I'm so confused will you show to me?

0:18:440:18:47

# You be there for me and care enough to... #

0:18:470:18:49

They're giving it some.

0:18:490:18:51

-# Hold me

-Show me

0:18:510:18:53

-# Lay your head lowly

-Tell me

0:18:530:18:55

-# Softly then boldly

-Yeah

0:18:550:18:58

# Carry me there

0:18:580:19:01

# I'm only human

0:19:010:19:05

# Feed me

0:19:050:19:06

# Kiss me and free me

0:19:060:19:09

# I will feel blessed

0:19:090:19:12

# Will you be there? #

0:19:120:19:17

THEY APPLAUD

0:19:170:19:20

I've never seen some of them look so nervous.

0:19:220:19:24

-Bless them, they've all got little red cheeks, haven't they?

-Yeah.

0:19:240:19:27

The way you started that performance was really unique

0:19:270:19:30

and different to anything we've seen today.

0:19:300:19:33

I think, for me personally, as soon as it started

0:19:330:19:36

I was interested to see where it was going to go.

0:19:360:19:38

It was like you were welcoming all your friends on stage to perform.

0:19:380:19:42

Which was really good,

0:19:420:19:43

because it makes you kind of like strong as a unit.

0:19:430:19:46

So I was interested to see what you were going to do.

0:19:460:19:48

I did see glimpses throughout of total performance

0:19:480:19:51

and brilliance, potentially.

0:19:510:19:53

The one thing I'd have to say, just some advice,

0:19:530:19:56

it has to be consistent.

0:19:560:19:57

You have to stay engaged throughout the performance.

0:19:570:20:00

The first half was much stronger than the second.

0:20:000:20:03

I don't know what happened in the second half, for me,

0:20:030:20:05

you kind of lost that energy.

0:20:050:20:07

But I still see there is potential for you guys to

0:20:070:20:10

function as a unit and be very, very powerful.

0:20:100:20:13

I think what showed, particularly in the way you began this,

0:20:130:20:16

is you have strength and you have an identity.

0:20:160:20:20

What you didn't do was play to your strengths throughout.

0:20:200:20:23

The first half was really good.

0:20:230:20:25

What I think happened in the second half is,

0:20:250:20:28

there are two key changes, by the time it gets to the end

0:20:280:20:31

it's gone out of a part of your voice where all of you are strong.

0:20:310:20:34

And so there's a change of sound.

0:20:340:20:36

When you're in your comfort zone,

0:20:360:20:39

in the bit where you all work together, the sound is beautiful.

0:20:390:20:42

ALL: Thank you.

0:20:420:20:44

What do you think about what the judges said?

0:20:440:20:47

Cos they all pretty much said the first half was great

0:20:470:20:49

-and the second half...

-Yeah.

-..not so great.

0:20:490:20:51

THEY ALL MURMUR IN AGREEMENT

0:20:510:20:52

Do you think that was a fair comment?

0:20:520:20:54

-Yeah.

-ALL: Yes.

0:20:540:20:56

And did you enjoy it?

0:20:580:21:00

THEY GIGGLE AND SHOUT

0:21:000:21:02

It was amazing!

0:21:020:21:04

There was one girl in there who didn't have a solo,

0:21:040:21:07

whose voice was the key that locked the whole blend together.

0:21:070:21:11

And if that's your role, that's as important a role as the solo is.

0:21:110:21:15

Not everybody has to have a solo.

0:21:150:21:16

-It's clever the way they did it though.

-It was really clever.

0:21:160:21:19

Like what you said, for a Michael Jackson song,

0:21:190:21:21

the way they started was kind of operatic.

0:21:210:21:24

There was a bit of ballet in there. Love it.

0:21:240:21:25

It's the angelic voices, that kind of choir.

0:21:250:21:28

Very brave.

0:21:280:21:30

# Will you be there? #

0:21:300:21:35

Four of today's acts have now performed for the judges,

0:21:410:21:44

and with four groups still to see

0:21:440:21:46

let's take a moment to remind ourselves why we're all here.

0:21:460:21:49

Comic Relief works hard to support people who are leading

0:21:580:22:00

In fact, the charity has funded over 15,000 projects in the UK.

Thank you.

0:22:340:22:36

Right, next up we've got Musicality.

0:22:450:22:48

Welcome!

0:22:480:22:50

I first saw these guys in Cardiff.

0:22:500:22:52

I think you'll find the opening soloist very interesting.

0:22:520:22:55

What do you think it's going to be like in there?

0:22:550:22:58

Very exciting.

0:22:580:23:01

Have you ever been in a television studio before?

0:23:010:23:03

-We did this last year.

-You were here last year?!

0:23:030:23:06

# On a mountain so high it can be... #

0:23:060:23:10

They were the newbies.

0:23:100:23:12

What have you told these guys about what it feels like

0:23:120:23:15

when you're on the stage?

0:23:150:23:16

It's really exciting. You've got to ignore the cameras.

0:23:160:23:18

And just enjoy it.

0:23:180:23:20

They are ready for you, are you ready for them?

0:23:200:23:22

ALL: Yes!

0:23:220:23:23

# Joyful, joyful

0:23:300:23:33

# Lord we adore Thee

# He watches over everything

# Fill us with the light of day

0:24:480:24:51

# Light of day. #

0:24:510:24:54

THEY APPLAUD

0:24:540:24:57

How do you think that went?

0:24:570:24:58

Yes, it was good. Yeah. I think that the harmonies were bang on.

0:24:580:25:03

Yeah, they did all right.

0:25:030:25:04

Guys, I really, really enjoyed that.

0:25:040:25:07

I love that song so you won me over straight away.

0:25:070:25:10

Everything was really natural,

0:25:100:25:12

which I think shows a huge sign of how well rehearsed you clearly were.

0:25:120:25:17

Your solo part was beautiful. Absolutely brilliant.

0:25:170:25:20

I can't believe a voice like that comes out of somebody so little.

0:25:200:25:23

It was incredible. All of the vocals together were really slick.

0:25:230:25:26

And I think it was a great performance. Well done.

0:25:260:25:28

I think vocally, as in unison, the blend is fantastic.

0:25:280:25:32

And like the song, Joyful, Joyful, I feel joyful, joyful

0:25:320:25:36

when I watch you guys.

0:25:360:25:37

Not just our first soloist,

0:25:370:25:39

but actually the other two soloists as well, absolutely brilliant vocals.

0:25:390:25:43

The ensemble was beautiful.

0:25:430:25:45

I've got one little word of advice, which is,

0:25:450:25:47

you all look really different, you're all different ages,

0:25:470:25:50

which is great, I kind of would like to see some uniformity

0:25:500:25:53

somewhere in what you're wearing.

0:25:530:25:55

That's my only negative comment. Rest of it, perfect.

0:25:550:25:58

ALL: Thanks.

0:25:580:26:00

They made some lovely comments, didn't they? ALL: Yeah.

0:26:010:26:04

What did you think of what they said to you?

0:26:040:26:06

-It was just amazing.

-Absolutely brilliant.

0:26:060:26:08

You all deserve a nice relax after that, so go and rest up. Well done.

0:26:080:26:12

ALL: Thank you!

0:26:120:26:13

Good work.

0:26:130:26:14

-Really good voices.

-The harmonies were strong.

0:26:140:26:18

I don't know about you guys, I also felt that there was more

0:26:180:26:21

people singing than actually were singing when they sang together.

0:26:210:26:25

It was just full.

0:26:250:26:27

It was a perfect song choice to showcase,

0:26:270:26:29

that's an ideal song to showcase how strong they can be.

0:26:290:26:32

# Light of day. #

0:26:320:26:34

Next up, we have New Creation. They're from Preston.

0:26:390:26:43

I saw them in Manchester. They are that kind of five-piece girl band.

0:26:430:26:47

I like them. There's something about them that I like.

0:26:470:26:50

They're a bit of a conundrum for me

0:26:500:26:52

because what I saw is a difference in personnel strength.

0:26:520:26:55

Some stand out more.

0:26:550:26:57

But I want to see if maybe they've gone away and tightened

0:26:570:27:00

things up and maybe encouraged the other ones to come up.

0:27:000:27:03

But there's tonal quality in solos that I actually liked.

0:27:030:27:06

Let's see.

0:27:060:27:08

Hello, New Creation. How are you doing?

0:27:080:27:10

Since we last saw you in Manchester, what's been going on?

0:27:100:27:13

-Rehearsing a lot?

-Yeah.

-Yes.

0:27:130:27:15

As soon as we found out, we were so excited.

0:27:150:27:17

So you're all set? Shall we do it?

0:27:170:27:20

Yes? You didn't seem sure. Are you sure, New Creation? Shall we do it.

0:27:200:27:24

ALL: Yes!

0:27:240:27:25

Yes! Let's go and perform!

0:27:250:27:27

# Do you think of her

0:27:420:27:45

# When you're with me?

0:27:450:27:49

# Repeat the memories you made together

0:27:490:27:53

# Whose face do you see?

0:27:530:27:56

# Do you wish I was a bit more like her?

0:27:560:28:03

# Am I too loud?

0:28:030:28:05

# I'll play the clown to cover up all these doubts

0:28:050:28:11

# Perfect heart, she's flawless

0:28:110:28:15

# She's the other woman

0:28:150:28:18

# Shining in her splendour

0:28:180:28:22

# You were lost

0:28:220:28:24

# Now she's gone

0:28:240:28:27

-# And I'm picking up the pieces

-Picking up the pieces

0:28:270:28:31

# I watch you cry

0:28:310:28:33

# But you don't see that I'm the one by your side

0:28:330:28:38

# Cos she's gone

0:28:380:28:41

-# In her shadow, is it me you see?

-Shadow, is it me you see?

0:28:410:28:46

# Cos all that's left is you and I

0:28:460:28:49

# And I'm picking up the pieces

0:28:490:28:52

# She left behind. #

0:28:520:28:55

Oh, she's smiling! She's smiling.

0:28:550:28:58

THEY APPLAUD

0:28:580:29:01

I closed my eyes and I listened to the most fantastic sound,

0:29:010:29:07

both ensemble and your soloists.

0:29:070:29:10

I think that you just sound really cool.

0:29:100:29:13

You sound like you're full of angst. It sounds intense.

0:29:130:29:16

I open my eyes, I see five really scared girls

0:29:160:29:22

that look like they can't wait for it to finish

0:29:220:29:24

and the torture will be over.

0:29:240:29:26

In fact, the biggest smile was from you right at the end, when it's over.

0:29:260:29:30

I never have to do that again!

0:29:300:29:31

And it shouldn't be that way. Vocally, 100% brilliant.

0:29:310:29:37

Visually, there needs to be a lot more.

0:29:370:29:40

We've really been trying to work on the visual side of things.

0:29:400:29:43

This time, since Manchester.

0:29:430:29:45

So, yeah, we will keep working on it.

0:29:450:29:47

What I want you to do is take confidence from the fact that

0:29:470:29:50

you've got the sound right.

0:29:500:29:51

And begin to introduce some of the energy and the joy that's

0:29:510:29:55

in the sound into your faces, into your bodies, into what you're doing.

0:29:550:29:59

Start believing in yourself, because you're

0:29:590:30:02

so much better than your expressions suggest you think you are.

0:30:020:30:07

I listen for recordable voices, and I hear that.

0:30:070:30:10

I hear some really strong recordable voices that

0:30:100:30:14

I could listen to on the radio.

0:30:140:30:16

The reality is, even though there's only two soloists that I see

0:30:160:30:19

who have stunning voices, you girls need to make sure you don't

0:30:190:30:23

see ourselves as backing vocalists, because you're not.

0:30:230:30:27

You're a band, and you need to not sing like backing vocalists

0:30:270:30:30

when you're singing together.

0:30:300:30:32

Oh, now there's some smiles. Now we have the smiles. How are you feeling?

0:30:330:30:38

I feel like I need to give you all a big hug after that.

0:30:380:30:41

Was it a bit traumatic?

0:30:410:30:43

-I think it seemed more traumatic than we expected.

-Right.

0:30:430:30:46

And we didn't realise it was showing.

0:30:460:30:48

They said there's no need to be like that,

0:30:480:30:50

because we're vocally really strong,

0:30:500:30:52

and that was encouraging.

0:30:520:30:53

-Carrie actually said 100% with the singing, didn't she?

-Yeah.

0:30:530:30:58

So it's all about your performance, I think was the main message.

0:30:580:31:02

-It's quite a self-conscious time of life, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:31:020:31:06

And I'm seeing that. They look so like, "Please don't look at me."

0:31:060:31:11

They sound brilliant, so they've just got to absorb it

0:31:110:31:13

and know that they are really good and just make a bit more fearless.

0:31:130:31:17

What worries me is they say they've been working on the performance

0:31:170:31:21

and visuals since Manchester, but it hasn't changed to me.

0:31:210:31:25

As far as the performance and visual, it's the same.

0:31:250:31:28

It's that self-conscious, unsure feeling.

0:31:280:31:31

The reason I brought them is because of that stunning voice, the voices.

0:31:310:31:35

# You left behind. #

0:31:350:31:38

So, that was Musicality and New Creation,

0:31:430:31:46

two very different performances in terms of energy and confidence,

0:31:460:31:49

but will it be the vocals that make the difference?

0:31:490:31:52

Coming up, the final two acts take to the stage.

0:31:520:31:54

Have 6 String and Diva8 perfected their routines?

0:31:540:31:57

I feel like I've just watched a mini musical.

0:31:570:32:00

That opening was absolute fantastic. It was spot-on.

0:32:000:32:03

It was a little bit pitchy at some points

0:32:030:32:05

but, apart from that, I thought it was really good.

0:32:050:32:08

Next up, we have 6 String, and they're from Milton Keynes.

0:32:140:32:19

I saw these guys in London. Quirky. Let's wait and see.

0:32:200:32:25

What's going on in your stomachs and your heads? Are you nervous?

0:32:250:32:29

-Excited.

-I was nervous, but now I'm just so excited.

0:32:290:32:32

I can't wait to get on the stage.

0:32:320:32:34

6 String!

0:32:340:32:36

Hey, let's do it, 6 String.

0:32:360:32:38

# If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea

0:32:400:32:44

# I'll sail the world to find you

0:32:460:32:51

# If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see

0:32:510:32:56

# I'll be the light to guide you

0:32:560:33:02

# To find out what we're made of

0:33:020:33:07

# When we are called to help our friends in need

0:33:070:33:12

# You can count on me like 1, 2, 3 Bom bom bom bom

0:33:120:33:18

# I'll be there

0:33:180:33:21

# For I know when I need it

0:33:210:33:24

# I can count on you like 4, 3, 2 Bom bom bom bom

0:33:240:33:29

# You'll be there

0:33:290:33:31

# Cos that's what friends are supposed to do

0:33:310:33:34

# You'll always have my shoulder when you cry

0:33:340:33:45

# I'll never let go Never say goodbye

0:33:450:33:53

-# You can count on me like 1, 2, 3

-Bom bom bom bom

0:33:540:34:00

# I'll be there

0:34:000:34:02

# You can count on me cos I can count on you. #

0:34:020:34:08

APPLAUSE

0:34:080:34:11

I feel like I've just watched a mini musical. It's fab.

0:34:120:34:15

The whole story's going on with the way that you're acting through it.

0:34:150:34:20

Great choice of song. Really good choice of song.

0:34:200:34:23

I think, John, you were right in saying quirky,

0:34:230:34:26

because your interpretation of the song was really quirky.

0:34:260:34:29

I love the little country and western move in the middle.

0:34:310:34:34

It was just so individual. You were very entertaining.

0:34:340:34:38

If there's one note I would give you to watch out for,

0:34:380:34:40

it's the breathing.

0:34:400:34:41

Your breathing was not always where it should be, which affects

0:34:410:34:47

-the pitching, but very entertaining.

-I really enjoyed it.

0:34:470:34:50

I thought it was really sweet. I liked the little, bom bom bom bom.

0:34:500:34:54

And the dance moves as well. You'll have to teach me that.

0:34:540:34:57

But I have to agree, it was a little bit pitchy at some points,

0:34:570:35:00

but apart from that, I thought it was really good.

0:35:000:35:03

-How was it?

-It was good.

0:35:030:35:06

-It was amazing.

-To have those judges give as all those positive comments!

0:35:060:35:11

Well done, 6 String. Go and chill out. Bye.

0:35:110:35:14

I'm not sure these guys are ready yet for the rigours of having

0:35:160:35:22

to come up with three, four different song arrangements,

0:35:220:35:25

-different performances, and nail it every time.

-I like their image.

0:35:250:35:31

It's different. They just look quite different.

0:35:310:35:34

There is a family vibe about them. The harmonies were in, by and large.

0:35:340:35:40

Pretty good. Sweet tone.

0:35:400:35:42

# You can count on me cos I can count on you. #

0:35:420:35:48

Right, next up, we have Diva8 from northeast London.

0:35:540:35:59

-I've got one word to describe their sound. Africa.

-Ooh!

0:35:590:36:05

So, what do you think that's going to be like, going in there?

0:36:050:36:08

It's really exciting. It's a really great opportunity for all of us.

0:36:080:36:13

-Which of the judges are you most looking forward to seeing? ALL:

-Joe.

0:36:130:36:18

Aw!

0:36:180:36:20

# Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck

0:36:230:36:27

# Some nights I call it a draw

0:36:270:36:30

# Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle

0:36:310:36:36

# Some nights I wish they'd just fall off

0:36:360:36:39

# But I still wake up I still see your ghost

0:36:390:36:44

# Oh, Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for oh

0:36:440:36:49

# What do I stand for? # What do I stand for?

0:36:490:36:53

# Most nights I don't know any more

0:36:530:36:59

# Oh-oh oh-oh

0:36:590:37:01

# Oh-oh oh-oh

0:37:010:37:03

# Oh oh

0:37:030:37:06

# Whoa oh

0:37:060:37:08

# Oh-oh oh-oh

0:37:080:37:10

# Oh-oh oh-oh

0:37:100:37:12

# Oh oh

0:37:120:37:13

# This is it, boys, this is war What are we waiting for?

0:37:150:37:19

# Why don't we break the rules already?

0:37:190:37:23

# I was never one to believe the hype

0:37:230:37:26

# Save that for the black and white

0:37:260:37:28

# I try twice as hard And I'm half as liked

0:37:280:37:30

# But here they come again to jack my style

0:37:300:37:32

# And that's all right

0:37:330:37:35

# Well, some nights I wish that this all would end

0:37:350:37:38

# Cos I could use some friends for a change

0:37:380:37:43

# And some nights I'm scared you'll forget me again

0:37:430:37:46

# Some nights I always win

0:37:460:37:50

# Sunrise! #

0:37:500:37:51

APPLAUSE

0:37:510:37:55

I hope Joe makes nice comments

0:37:550:37:57

otherwise they're going to be crushed, aren't they?

0:37:570:37:59

-They love him.

-Yes.

0:37:590:38:01

-Their little faces are looking a bit scared now.

-I know.

0:38:010:38:04

Your sound together is brilliant. It sounds really beautiful.

0:38:040:38:07

Full of energy but just lift the facial expressions,

0:38:070:38:13

the movement. Have a bit more conviction

0:38:130:38:15

to match the sound of your voices,

0:38:150:38:17

because it's beautiful. You've got nothing to be shy about.

0:38:170:38:20

I love your sound. You have a beautiful African sound,

0:38:200:38:24

and the harmonies, the choice of harmonies,

0:38:240:38:26

the way you're singing the harmonies, they're punchy, they're beautiful.

0:38:260:38:30

A great sound. What I'd love to see is that matched

0:38:300:38:35

in the way you're expressing yourself facially and in the choreography.

0:38:350:38:38

It feels like punchy vocals and just slightly pathetic moving.

0:38:380:38:42

So that needs to come up some.

0:38:420:38:44

I loved the mixture and the diversity you have for different heights,

0:38:440:38:48

the different sizes, the different types,

0:38:480:38:50

the different looks, and it all works together.

0:38:500:38:53

You're a proper glee club

0:38:530:38:55

and you work as a unit vocally. That opening was absolutely fantastic -

0:38:550:38:59

it was spot-on!

0:38:590:39:01

I think your sound is unique.

0:39:010:39:03

Your vocal blend as a group is very tight.

0:39:030:39:07

The ensemble is uplifting.

0:39:070:39:10

So it's almost like it just, even if you're not trying, the sound

0:39:100:39:14

atually sounds like it's coming from the heart.

0:39:140:39:16

It's quite an amazing thing.

0:39:160:39:18

Joe McElderry has spoken to you.

0:39:190:39:22

Joe has spoken to you!

0:39:220:39:23

What did he say? Are you happy with what he said?

0:39:230:39:26

-ALL:

-Yeah.

0:39:260:39:27

Shake off the shyness, girls!

0:39:270:39:30

So, do you think if you got to come back, do you think you've got

0:39:300:39:33

-that energy you could give? ALL:

-Yeah.

0:39:330:39:34

-Do you think there is more from Diva8 that we could see? ALL:

-Yes.

0:39:340:39:38

Well, let's hope you get to come back, eh? Fingers crossed. Well done.

0:39:380:39:41

I loved their ensemble sound. It's a very African sound, actually, but...

0:39:410:39:46

for me they just weren't punchy, physically, to watch.

0:39:460:39:49

I think it's confidence, as well.

0:39:490:39:51

They seem a bit, "I don't know if I can do that."

0:39:510:39:54

If they can lift it a bit,

0:39:540:39:56

-then they could be really good.

-The ensemble's powerful together

0:39:560:39:59

and then the solos, individually,

0:39:590:40:03

kind of could be a bit more.

0:40:030:40:05

# Sunrise! #

0:40:050:40:07

Here's a quick reminder of the glee clubs that have performed today.

0:40:130:40:16

# We are young... #

0:40:190:40:22

# Don't stop moving

0:40:260:40:27

# Can you feel the music?

0:40:270:40:29

# DJ's got us going around

0:40:290:40:32

# Around

0:40:320:40:33

# Don't stop... #

0:40:330:40:34

# You are perfect to me

0:40:370:40:42

# You're perfect to me... #

0:40:420:40:45

# And I will then say to Thee

0:40:480:40:51

# You are my friend... #

0:40:510:40:54

# Joyful, joyful Lord, we adore thee

0:40:570:41:00

# God of glory, Lord of love... #

0:41:000:41:04

# Picking up the pieces

0:41:070:41:09

-# Picking up the pieces

-And you'll cry

0:41:090:41:11

# But you don't see that I know... #

0:41:110:41:13

# Then care for me Like one, two, three

0:41:160:41:21

# I'll be there

0:41:210:41:24

# Mmm... #

0:41:240:41:25

# Some nights I'm scared that you'll forget me again

0:41:270:41:31

# Some nights I always win

0:41:310:41:33

# Sunrise! #

0:41:330:41:35

OK, so all eight groups have now performed but, remember,

0:41:400:41:44

not everyone can make it through to the studio heats.

0:41:440:41:47

Let's join our judges to find out who, from this second audition show,

0:41:470:41:50

will be going through to the next round.

0:41:500:41:53

DAVID: Who are we absolutely saying "yes" to?

0:41:530:41:56

-Um...

-These ones.

-You'd definitely say "yes" to those?

-Definitely.

0:41:560:42:00

That leaves...

0:42:000:42:02

On account of their soloists and their AMAZING technique,

0:42:020:42:05

these guys. They need to sort out their tuning.

0:42:050:42:07

They've got work but if they do the work, they'd be fantastic.

0:42:070:42:11

I think they are the ones worth investing some affirmation in.

0:42:120:42:16

And I think they will do better.

0:42:160:42:18

OK, we've got two more places. Have we got a definite "no"? Yeah.

0:42:190:42:23

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:42:230:42:24

-I agree.

-Also a definite "no" would be...

0:42:240:42:28

Yeah. Me too.

0:42:280:42:29

So we have two more places and we have three glee clubs.

0:42:290:42:33

-The cutesy lot.

-Yeah. Between those two.

0:42:330:42:36

-These guys, you cannot deny the singing was better.

-I know.

0:42:380:42:42

I know. I'm just...

0:42:420:42:43

That's fine. Go with what you know.

0:42:430:42:45

There is no other glee club in this competition

0:42:450:42:49

-who sing with this style.

-No, no, absolutely not.

0:42:490:42:52

Right, that's it!

0:42:520:42:54

The five glee clubs going through to the studio heats are...

0:42:590:43:02

So, another five acts have made it into the next round

0:43:230:43:26

and are one step closer to the live shows.

0:43:260:43:29
